Popular passages

Page xxxvii - The Negro is, by natural disposition neither an intellectual nor an idealist, like the Jew; nor a brooding introspective, like the East African; nor a pioneer and frontiersman, like the Anglo-Saxon. He is primarily an artist, loving life for its own sake. His metier is expression rather than action.
Page 13 - I have never been greatly interested in the past, for the past is something that you cannot change. I like the new, the unfinished and the problematic.
